How to measure the temperature of your Raspberry PI

When running Raspian on your PI (and other distro`s for PI), an Raspberry PI specific application is installed, which let you monitor everything from volt-status, HDMI-status to the PI`s core temperature.

To check the core temperature, simply run the command  “/opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd measure_temp”

PS: Run the commando  “/opt/vc/bin/vcgencmd commands” to see all the data you can extract via that application.

Unfortunately, it does not appear to be possible to check the temperature elsewhere on the (physical) Pi, without getting a temperature sensor.
